as much as you can the essential mistake is that barack obama is making is that he believes lyndon johnson's great society entitlements can elevate the poor to prosperity. they can't. in 1965, the poverty rate in this country stood at 14%. now, after untold trillions have been spent fighting poverty, the poverty rate is 14.3%. amazing, is it not? the conclusion, america is bankrupting itself with an entitlement philosophy that does little. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, according to a consulting firm mackenzie and company, 20% of american men ages 25 to 64 are currently not working. that's up 13 points since 1970. if the study is true, that's obviously a massive problem. here now to analyze our barack and hard place duo monica crowley and alan colmes. colmes, all of the trillions spent on the poverty programs and the poverty rate is almost exactly the same. >> i have got to disagree with your statement in talking points that somehow this president is like lyndon johnson's great society wanting all these entitlement programs. he has offered to cut medicaid, medi
